Hydes Queens Brewery Manchester, Updated

We have added a few more label images to the above brewery, in our ‘Featured Breweries’ section. One vertical oval & four tombstone shaped labels. If you can add to this selection or any others within our site, please contact our web master via our ‘Getting in Touch’ page.

Link to Alan GMs Web Pages

We have added a new section to our links page, our ‘Members Websites’. To kick this off you will find a link to Alan’s web site, this is very interesting both image wise & as a result of his research. He continues to research brewery trademarks and has extensive listings of companies who bottled for Bass, McEwan, Worthington and Youngers. If you are able to add to his knowledge base, please contact him via his web site.

New Labels Added to Gallery Pages

We have added some more old & rare images of labels to the appropriate ‘Gallery’ pages. So have a look at the following & join me in looking somewhat green around the gills.

Dales Cambridge Brewery, Trunch Brewery, Youngman Preston & Co Ltd., Ogden & Sons, Lindsell. Feel free to share your rare labels, just contact our Webmaster via our ‘Getting in Touch’ page.

Quirky Quote #2

Here goes with QQ #2. This one is a bit more suited to my level, good old BritCom, showing our joy at being in the EU.

“You were only supposed to soak the bloody labels off”

With apologies to Michael Caine (Charlie Croker) – The Italian Job

Well, having recovered from LOTY physically, if not financially. And as it is over a month since the last ‘Spot the Difference’.

I have had a browse thru the collection & offer this pair of labels for you to ponder over.


Walsall & District Clubs comparative

No help this time, but I wonder if Andy & his mate were drinking this in our superb promotional cartoon?

Quirky Quote #1

As threatened earlier today, we begin our quest for quirky quotes. Our opener, at the suggestion of our well read newsletter editor, Steve B.

“It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune,

must be in want of a beer label collection”    With apologies to Jane Austen – Pride & Prejudice

We have just added the above brewery to our ‘Featured Breweries’ pages. Hopefully we will add further images in the coming days or weeks. If you wish to have some of your labels from this brewery appear on this site, just contact the webmaster via our ‘Getting in Touch’ page.

Quite a Week for the Labologists Society

Well what a week! Last Saturday we raised £2,800 for our LOTY charities. £1,400 each to Keech Hospices, Luton and to Macmillan Cancer Support.

And Lo & Behold, today we passed the 25,000 visitor milestone for this website. That is in around four & a half months, since launch.

So what next, well more content as & when time allows. Please keep sending your label images. Hopefully some pictures of last weekends LOTY event over the next couple of days.

Thanks to everyone involved in & supporting Label Of The Year once again.

Cheers Pete

Beer labels added: Openshaw Brewery Company

Another 4 images added to the above page under ‘Featured Breweries’ tab. Nothing that old or rare, just different to what is already there.

Could you add something more? If so, as usual contact our webmaster via the ‘Getting in Touch’ page. Thanks in advance (or is that in hope)

Island Green Brewery Co, Wrexham

Two images of labels from the above brewery have been added to the ‘Gallery’ on the page Brewers G-I. Very nice rare examples, why not share some of your favourite labels with your fellow Labologists and all those other interested visitors to our site.
